    So people who are giving worst case scenarios, speculating about future worries and generally are dwelling in this gloom please don’t post.

    It’s hard to see positive news coming through in the media but let’s have this thread to update the positive Corona virus related news.

    China has closed down its last CV related hospital as there are not enough new cases to support it staying open.

    Doctors in India have been successful in treating cases of CV with a combination of existing medicines. They are recommending doing this on a global scale.

    Researchers at Erasmus medical centre claim to have found an antibody.

    China have reopened all 42 apple stores and most the country is returning to normal.

    Israel are set to announce the development of a vaccine.

    At this time let’s do what we can for each other, community spirit for the next 3 months and remember to speak to people in need. A phone call to an elderly relative or seeing if your homebound neighbour up the road needs some milk. Let’s be the best version of ourselves we can be.

    The environment has a good chance of doing well.
    See Wuhan’s lack of pollution in maps.
    Lack of planes flying/contrails - similar to Sept 11 aftermath.
    Lack of cars being used.

    As per the Branson thread though, it’s the richest <1% that use up the most resources of the planet. Need more Bill Gates type zillionaires giving billions away.

    People will come out of this realising that material goods are so less important than family and friends.
